Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has said that state agencies will not immediately recognize the 300 marriages performed in Michigan on Saturday, before a stay was issued. Spokespeople for the Governor said that everything related to the marriages, including adoptions by married couples will be placed "on hold."
Today, a judge struck down Michigan's ban on marriage equality, which is a victory in itself. But Judge Bernard A. Friedman also completely ripped apart the testimony of one "expert" witness, Mark Regnerus. Regnerus' thoroughly flawed and discredited "parenting study" has not been able to pass courtroom muster.
Earlier this week, Bill Donahue emailed NYC Pride and asked to participate in the 44th annual NYC LGBT Pride March with a banner that reads “Straight is Great." Further countering Bill's intended message, Michael O'Laughlin wrote an op-ed for The Advocate yesterday, called "Gay and Faithful Aren't Mutually Exclusive."
